Wow what place !! Visited this place with our sons in laws. This was our first visit. Just outside Cannock in a small village called Cannock Wood. The food was excellent and servings were large and the presentation was superb. If you are in this area you must try it. You will not find a better restaurant in this area.

I had smoked haddock served on mashed potato, topped with poached egg and cheese sauce, my hubby had mixed grill. He could not eat all of it much to the pleasure of our dog. We asked for a doggy bag.

I have lived in Norton Canes for 4 years and have never found a good pub with great food until a few days ago. The Rag pub and restaurant about 4 miles from where I live does excellent food, and I mean excellent.Most mains under £8 and homemade chips which is very rare. You need to book though for the...

Came for lunch with my daughter, can't fault the meal but all I would say is I would check if the bowls club are there for lunch as they are incredibly noisy, to the point that I couldn't even hear what the waitress was saying to me!! Have been here before for an evening meal and was much nicer!!

We have visited the rag tonight and although the food was good, the service left a lot to be desired. We were rushed to order before 9pm and met with multiple sarcastic comments. This included ' I only have one pair of hands' when checking that the drinks order included 3 beers and 'there must be an echo in here'... More

We have eaten here many times over the last few years and it is always amazing. The food although not cheap is good quality and very well cooked worth paying the extra, and with it being a pub you are not paying over the odds for the drinks. They do an excellent offer in the week for 30.00 per couple.... More
